"And we all thought that snow is white!! Clearly, the value is more important than the colour. There are some who argue that colour does not exist in nature, but is only an artifact created by the manner in which our eyes and visual…"
"Colour is fascinating and deceiving. What we see and what we think we see aren't always the same, and depending on what it is next to, also influences what we see, as I am learning only too well, lol."

Philippe..thank you for your kind words regarding my art work..I;ve been painting for years but I still have a long way to go! Your art is beautiful and I love the thoughts behind each of your paintings! Keep them coming!
Philippe - we are not supposed to critique works posted in the "photo" section, that is why I have hesitated. If you block off the left side of "Explosions" along the diagonal line of the background value shift, you will see a very nice, cheerful painting on the right side. Now block off the right side along the same line. The left side of the painting is quite drab by comparison, with lots of mid values but no light values except a few streaks of white. There is no unity between the two sides of the canvas. I think you need some bold light values on the left side to give it more life and provide a better sense of unity.
